Information security is fundamental to agile, responsive and high quality public services. The UK has almost doubled its investment to protect Britain from cyber-attacks with £1.9 billion allocated over the course of the next five years. Added to what the government is spending on core cyber security capabilities, protecting its own networks and ensuring safe and secure online services, the government’s total spending will be more than £3.2 billion.
Securing critical information and assets, including the government’s ICT infrastructure, are vital to safeguarding against cyber-attacks as well as a range of other security threats such as criminal and negligent behaviour. Whitehall Media’s 5th annual GovSec conference is geared around enabling government to function effectively, safely and securely through improved IT, information and infrastructural security. The all-day conference explores how public sector organisations and professionals can make sense of securing their functions in a rapidly changing environment.
Join hundreds of senior cyber security, InfoSec and risk management professionals to discuss the threat landscape, opportunities to detect and defeat attacks through appropriate skills and capabilities as well as best practice and approaches required to protect critical national systems and networks. Through a series of thought-leadership and case-study presentations, we showcase the very best examples of how public bodies are building resilience and utilising technology to solve strategic security issues.
